.VEN not allowed ?

In Draft Applicant Guidebook, I read :

"Applications for strings that are country or territory names will not be approved, as they are not available under the New gTLD Program in this application round. A string shall be considered to be a country or territory name if : it is an alpha-3 code listed in the ISO 3166-1 standard."

"VEN" is listed in the alpha-3 code listed in ISO 3166-1 for Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. I am lucky "VIN" is not listed there.
